Ask Me Why I'm Vegan

From Bruce Friedrich - [email protected] has a new t-shirt that reads "Ask me why I'm vegan." I have now worn it three times, and every time, people do in fact ask me. It is wonderful.

My previous favorite shirts, from Vegan Outreach and Vegan Action, elicited occasional questions and discussions, but usually from other vegans. This one is my dream come true: Even the people who don't ask me have to ponder the question to decide if they want to ask, so they have an internal discussion of veganism.

I carry Why Vegan and PETA's "Vegetarian Starter Kit" and give them to people who respond to the shirt. So far, all but one has accepted the literature. Even the one guy who didn't want the literature (he was a bartender and was working) listened attentively and then came over to the table where I was eating and told the group of us that he would be vegetarian the next time we came to the restaurant.

Get one.
